“I feel great and confident with renewed energy to take back to my school...”

Training and Conference Centre

The Bridge is a major provider of professional development in the UK in the field of education, both special and mainstream, holding a reputation particularly in the fields of Learning Difficulties and Disabilities (LDD). An ‘outstanding’ National Teaching School, The Bridge has been delivering courses within its Training & Conference Centre and designing bespoke programmes since 1997.

Our ambition is not to dictate best practice but to explore, innovate, evidence and to share. We look to do this by working in partnership with individuals who can share their perspectives, implementing models and programmes that meet the progression needs of the child as well as the adult.

We establish need through local and national agenda, through research and also respond to identified areas of individual priority. This enables us to maintain an appropriate range of programmes, from Introduction to Professional. We are sensitive to all the views of the market, evaluating especially in terms of quality and impact, adjusting both the content of courses in response to the market and also the style of delivery as appropriate.
